Unpainted Kirin Sculpture by LucidDesignFX Unpainted Kirin Sculpture by LucidDesignFX
Made during my first semester of my final year, this is a sculpture of an oriental mythical monster called a Kirin. It was primarily sculpted in Super Sculpey over a steel armature with kitchen foil (10 meters of it) before being oven baked. The final details such as the antlers, horns, teeth and spines were added after the baking with Milliput since Super Sculpey didn't seem to like being sculpted into sharp points. Milliput on the other hand can be sanded after it's cured so the finish on the horns etc is quite good.
My first concept for this sculpture is also in my gallery if that takes anyones fancy and, as ever, if you having any passing thoughts regarding my work, feel free to comment! :)

Haha, I had to google discord but having seen him I can definitely see the similarity. Chances are that character was also modeled on a Kirin since the resemblance is uncanny. :)

Haha, I'm pleased you like it. Since the feedback I have received from this has been so positive I am currently considering a limited run of these for sale, some of which would be painted and some of which would require painting, so if you're still interested at some point in the future keep your eyes on this page since they will be advertised here. Thanks again for commenting, it's really most appreciated. :)

Haha, glad you like it! The Kirin is a creature from Japanese and Chinese mythology whose appearance is said to bring about the coming of a golden age or benevolent leader. If oriental mythology takes your fancy it's worth the look in. :)
